TSU will offer an online master's degree program in computer vision

Tomsk State University in collaboration with Skillfactory and Rubius will launch a new online master's degree program Computer Vision and Neural Networks in September 2024. It will suit those who want to learn computer vision systems development, application of machine learning techniques, and neural networks. No machine learning, physics, or optics skills are required for entry; a basic math skills and a bachelor's degree diploma will be enough. Graduates will be able to work in manufacturing, medicine, commerce, and cybersecurity.

Students will learn the basic principles and methods of computer vision and will acquire practical skills in the development and training of neural networks using Rubius's Visius intelligent video analytics system. Students will be able to choose one of three specializations: AR technologies, generative design, or robotics.

“A computer vision specialist must be able to process images, recognize objects, and apply advanced machine learning and neural network techniques. It is important to have a good understanding of programming to successfully solve complex problems in this field.  These skills can be applied in various areas such as medical image analysis, traffic surveillance systems, development of games using artificial intelligence, and development of autonomous robots that can recognize objects,” said Anton Kudinov, head of the Computer Vision and Neural Networks program and CEO of Rubius.

Courses are taught by top experts in machine learning and computer vision who will help to understand the theory, share practical experience, and answer questions.

Enrollment for the new master's program is now open. The tuition fee is 320,000 rubles per year (approximately 3,500 USD). The duration of the program is 2 years. Students will get access to a free course in mathematics after registration to refresh their knowledge.

TSU online master's programs provide an education equal to full-time. They are a full cycle of education, including lectures, webinars, seminars, homework, tests, practical classes, and the defense of the master's thesis. The benefits of full-time students are available to students. Graduates of online master's programs receive TSU diplomas.
